short and easy, but so much to see!

Did on Jan 3, 2019. One of the most awe-inspiring, beautiful, out-of-this-world hikes! Especially in winter with the snow dusting the rocks. Parked at the lot near sunrise point. Started at sunrise point, went down queens garden trail, continued onto Navajo loop (Wall Street portion was closed but took the other leg to get to sunset point, then walked along rim trail to get back to sunrise point. Did the hike in hiking boots— was a little icy/slippery especially at the tops of the trail near sunrise point and particularly sunset point, but hiking boot were fine. Wouldn’t really recommend doing it in street shoes during winter when it’s icy— lots of people slipping especially trying to go down the trail from sunset point (more heavily trafficked in that area so the ice was slicker)

Definitely a great trail, went down queens garden to Navajo (also did the peakaboo loop) and we wore traction going up Navajo because of the ice. The hike was gorgeous and highly recommended, but I was glad we asked the ranger who recommended going up Navajo instead of down this time of year.

It is a very nice hike to see some hoodoos and other formations. I also really like how some unscrupulous lowlife scum sucking bottom feeders are thinking (?) that carving their name in the rocks is the best thing to do.

I hiked Bryce Canyon National Park in early October. Weather and temps were perfect hiking weather. We hiked down the Wall Street section and hiked back up the Navajo Trail. I did that loop as one hike. (If I had to pick, the Wall Street section is slightly better than Navajo Trail). I'd have to say that hike is probably the best and most scenic hike that I have done anywhere in the U.S. I thought it was better than any of the trails that we did in Zion. The scenery is incredible, and the rock structure and formations are so unique to any other trails I have done. The trails are a bit steep, but they aren't too bad if you are younger or in decent shape. I would rate the trails as Moderate. We also did a separate hike down to the Queens Garden section, and then hiked back up the same trail. The Queens Garden was neat to see, but was nothing like the Wall Street and Navajo Loop Trail section. I would suggest the Wall Street and Navajo Loop Trail as the loop trail to do at Bryce. As a side note, Bryce Point is worth a stop to see as well- great overlook. It overlooks the whole ampitheater area. If you are looking at the different Utah parks or considering which ones to see, Bryce N.P. is a must stop on your trip. It is so unique and totally different from Zion. You can see and hike the best trails in 1-2 days in Bryce was enough for our group.

Beautiful views in the snow on 12.28.18. Take water and prepare to catch your breath at times with the switchbacks.

Was cold and windy, had the most people of any of the hikes I did. I took the primative trail from the back side and saw very few people was well worth the hike

We started at the sunrise point and ended at the sunset point via queen’s garden trail, Navajo loop and the rim trail. Beautiful hike in the snow. We had ice trekkers on our hiking boots that helped walking on the icy trails.

Awesome hike! The views were incredible, especially with the light layer of snow. I would recommend shoes with really good traction, or bringing along some microspikes, since some of the switchbacks can be a little slippery from the snow/ice.

Oh. My. Goodness. The views are breathtaking. Definitely follow the park’s footwear rules!

Beautiful view at the end, well marked trail.

Completed this stunning loop on Christmas with intermittent snow flurries, was just gorgeous, micro spikes would’ve come in handy for getting in and out of the canyon.

Absolutely stunning trail. Amazing at sunset. A bit of snow- spikes would be helpful but not necessary. Highly recommend!

Loved the hike, easy, with great views. It was a bit difficult at times to see the cairns but we were able to get back on the trail. Icy and snowy at parts but we were fine with our hiking boots (no trek poles or shoe grips).

Arriving just as the sun appears in the east is a perfect time for morning hike, trail traffic is extremely light and the temperatures are in the comfortable 50s.
One of the first trail treats is Thor’s hammer. Thor’s Hammer may be one of the most photographed features of Bryce Canyon as it’s located a short distance from the beginning of the Navajo Loop trailhead at Sunset Point.After hiking past Thor’s Hammer, a series of switchbacks descend down about 650 ft. to the amphitheater floor as the Ponderosa Pines welcome you. Next the trail gently traverses across the heavily forested amphitheater floor, and in the distance you can hear the neighing and snorting of horses as their riders guide them along the equestrian trail. No other sounds seem to be present for the next mile... just the soft music of my shoes caressing the trial and the alluring swish of the ice in my canteen. Further on the beautiful rolling terrain becomes dotted with the Colorado Pinyon. This hearty shrub is more suited to the drier elevations and its wide root system keeps each one a good distance from its neighbor.
This has been quite an intoxicating experience!

A short little hike to see two arches for the price of one... it's unbelievable how big some of the arches are!

Its an amazing experience roaming amongst these wonderful geological creations! Marvel at them from a distance, stand under them up close or walk right through them... all unforgettable!

Short and easy to get to! Go in the mid morning for best light.

Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos. The views at the start are phenomenal, and as you hike down into the valley, they get even more unique and interesting. The trail is really easy to follow. Wall Street was open for us and was a fun, although very short and super steep, slot canyon. We added on Peekaboo Loop - fantastic!

I won’t call this a hike, more like a quick trail to view these stunning arches! Perfect place to start and be sure to head over to Windows.

Amazing Trail!

fun short Trail. Make sure to follow the trail and not just the creek bed or you'll get off track. love the heart in the Rock at the end.

incredible hike. Love being Down Under the hoodoos. Steep beginning and end but I hiked it with my three year old and nine year old and they did fine.

October 2018- Amazing trail! We parked at sunset point and saw a beautiful sunrise over the hoodoos with a sparse crowd. Unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. You really feel like you are on another planet. Highly recommend. Every corner you turn you’ll want to take a picture! Took us a little under 2 hours.

Easy hike especially on a cool fall day. Toadstool hoodoos are an a amazing sight. You get very close to them and you feel like you are on another planet. saw a lot of families with young kids. Also saw several dogs on the trail.

Great way to see the Bryce canyon Hoodoos. Spectacular views. Crowded trail. It was in the high 30s - low 40s with clear blue sky. We went counter clockwise so I think the uphill this way wasn't as steep. In any case plan on getting out of breath on the way up. Hiking is a must while in Bryce canyon and this is a great option if you don't have too much time.

Worth hiking this trail to the end as it provides views on the other side of the mesa too! For more details and pics, visit https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/
